ISWI Newsletter - Vol.5 No.109
13 October 2013

Dear ISWI Participant:

Please find it attached to this email. Below is the editorial inside of Newsletter 78.


Welcome to IAU Commission 46 Newsletter 78, the second to be published under the new editor, Larry Marschall (Gettysburg College). This newsletter contains a lengthy message from Commission 46 President Prof. Jean-Pierre De Greve regarding the proposed reorganization of the Commission. It also contains a report on educational activities by OAD Director Kevin Govender, which we hope will be a regular feature of the newsletter. And we feature an article by Prof. Chris Impey on a hot topic in higher education today: MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). As we ease into this new editorship, comments and contributions are both needed and welcome. Thanks to everyone who has made a contribution to this edition of the Newsletter. Please note the text in this Editorial highlighted in RED.


Most humbly yours,
George Maeda
Editor of ISWI Newsletter
